About this book
This book series is intended for beginning students of manual mobilization. It is not our intention to present all possible manual mobilization theories and techniques, but rather to present the most basic theory and skills necessary for safe and effective use of this treatment approach.
We made great effort to present the biomechanical principles upon which our techniques are based in their most simple and clear form. These concepts form an important foundation for diagnosis and treatment of physiological joint movement restrictions.
